I'm so thrilled to see quite a few new faces here since my inaugural personal newsletter last month. If we haven't met, hi, new friends:)
February flew by so fast. and for me, it was sort of "stormy". I was making steady progress in building my company, Path Unbound. But a series of events turned out to be more disruptive than I had anticipated.
I was featured on the cover of a Wall Street Journal article about pandemic home buying and subsequently received numerous social media harassments, partially due to the toxic "troll culture" we are living in and partially because news articles don't always tell the whole story - in my case, it told half of it.
As a new entrepreneur, I am learning every bit of lesson from a PR perspective. A few days ago, I received yet another surprised email - the TODAY show from NBC reached out to me for a Zoom video interview! I was reluctant at first, given the negative responses I have been receiving, but it turns out that their segment would be more educational than sensational.
After much thought, I decided to do the interview. You may see my face sometime in March on national television.
All of this was a valuable learning opportunity for me as a new businesswoman who one day shall grace the cover of news media again - for better reasons:)
